Star Trek Vanguard Concludes

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

With the release of Star Trek Vanguard: Storming Heaven this week, the Star Trek Vanguard saga is coming to an end.

Star Trek Vanguard: Storming Heaven is a true finale to the series. “The final Vanguard novel, Storming Heaven, continues that tradition by representing another first in Star Trek fiction: a planned ending to a literary original series,” said Author David Mack. “The last thing we wanted was to overstay Vanguard‘s welcome by churning out novels that did little to advance its overall narrative. In fact, after I finished the series’ fifth novel, Precipice, it had become clear to the three of us [Mack, Dayton Ward, Kevin Dilmore] that the series had reached ‘critical mass.’ It was time to begin our endgame.”

Mack: Writing For Star Trek

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Author David Mack explains the freedoms and restrictions when it comes to writing Star Trek novels.

A fan since the original series syndication days, Mack came out of film school hoping to write for Star Trek: The Next Generation. “I hit a lot of obstacles,” he said. “[Editor] John [Ordover] gave me a copy of the writers’ guidelines for the novels. I went home, read them, realized my proposal-in-progress violated every instruction on the page, and decided not to waste John’s time with it. He appreciated this gesture so much that we became friends.”
